4:07 am
>> and we asked abc's political director rick klein for his take. good morning to you, rick. >> reena and kendis, ohio stirred something up that only ohio may be able to settle. that meaning the republican convention over the summer. donald trump a split decision winning a couple of states but losing critical battleground of ohio to john kasich and marco rubio leaving but john kasich likely to emerge as the establishment alternative. when you combine that with ted cruz, you have three moving forward and donald trump is likely to be the person that ends this process with more delegates than anyone else. he is unlikely, though to necessarily have a majority and that means you might have that contested convention, it would be all about ohio so big tests about and big vulnerabilities that reveal themselves around the front-runner. >> thank you so much. we're analyzing the exit polls this morning. they reveal a lot about how voters are feeling about all the candidates. >> abc's lauren lyster has been going through all the data and
